Advanced grid doesn't work in nested InfoTable

Hi ,

---Nested InfoTable

I need to display multiple tables in the mashup with ONE server call .  So  I created a data shape and add the fields with data type "InfoTable".   In the mashup , I bind the field to advanced grid instead of "all data", so I call it nested InfoTable. 

 

---Dynamic columns

I also need the columns of the advanced grid to be dynamic , so I don't set data shape for the InfoTable fields  .  Only advanced grid supports dynamic columns , grid doesn't support it.

 

But advanced grid does NOT  work  in the combination of Nested InfoTable + Dynamic columns.  It just display the data as Empty lines.  See the summary table and attached image below: 

 

Is it a known issue ? 

 

    Dynamic Column Nest Table
    Yes No Yes No
Dynamic Column Yes / / Doesn't Work Works Well
  No / / Works Well Works Well
Nest Table Yes Doesn't Work Works Well / /
  No Works Well Works Well / /

The workaound is to avoid to use the nest table as the server's result  in the mash , instead , use multiple services.

Hi @seanccc.

 

Can you provide some of the entities from your example so we can take a closer look at what you're trying to do?  What version of ThingWorx are you running?
